Eyes on Leicester City v. Watford: Bolton would like a little help

Matthew Lewis

Leicester City and Watford start off this weekend's round of Championship action with their top-ish of the table clash at the King Power Stadium tonight. Bolton Wanderers fans will be watching this one closely as the result could have major repercussions for the Trotters' play-off hopes.

Watford currently sit third in the table, four points off second-place Hull City and thus four points off an automatic promotion place. Since the automatic promotion places are mathematically out of reach for the Whites, we are free to cheer for a Watford win.

The Foxes are a point behind Bolton, sitting in seventh place, and anything more than a loss will see them overtake Bolton in the table, at least for the time being. They have the much better goal difference and will thus see them in the playoff spots with one game to go (after tonight) if they draw.

Watford's form of late has been erratic, having taken only eight points of the 18 available in their last six matches. They have lost two straight on the road. Leicester are no better, taking only six points in that stretch. The Foxes have won only one of their last five home matches (against Bolton ten days ago) but they are unbeaten in their last four matches in total.

A Leicester loss will have Bolton fans breathing much easier ahead of Saturday's Cardiff City Clash which will be a tough game.
